Our list of must-have (or, we should say lust-have) items for summer 2020 in Canberra is extensive. Long Bermuda shorts, oversized gold chains, muscle tees, matching resort wear and barely-there sandals all reign supreme. After all, uncovering emerging trends, reporting on them, and adding them to our shopping carts is literally our pastimes here at onthecover.
Of course, summer dresses feature heavily on our wish lists. We’re crazy for an open-backed cotton dress, anything with smocking, or a statement-making puffed sleeve. But we’re all about bringing different voices and real-life styles to the front, so we asked what Canberra’s most-followed fashion and lifestyle influencer – Janette Wojtaszak – what style of dress she’s wearing this summer.
Janette is well known in Canberra’s most-stylish circles. She’s the face behind lifestyle blog The Statement Life, a digital expert, stylist AND boss lady of Sorted. When it comes to style, she knows her stuff.
The dress I'm living in this summer...
“You will find me wearing nothing other than floaty dresses in my signature colours: pink, red and florals,” says Janette. “Right now, I am loving this floral number, which I got last year from Next. It’s a classic – and exactly suits my style!”
Janette’s go-to styling tip for a floaty, floral summer dress is to pair it with sunglasses and sneakers.
“I live in the SS World – which is Sneakers and Sunglasses. I find that you can take your look from day to night, by simply swapping your shoes and accessories. Go for a ’70s vibe with round sunglasses, or for an evening look, go ultra-chic in cat’s eye frames.”
